Tucker's garden stone

It's been a while since I've posted about Tucker. Though I've come a long way in my grieving process, I miss him terribly.

For Christmas, Jim's sister Patricia gave us a pet memorial garden stone. I was stunned by this gift--I had wanted one but hadn't told anyone this.

Now that spring has arrived, I chose a photo and set it outside last night.

Next to it, I placed a small statue my mom gave me after Tucker's death. She said it reminded her of me as a girl.

I chose a spot in the far backyard, near the catnip plant, and in front of a mosaic I made a number of years ago that spells "love."

My sister-in-law is not online. I will print these photos and mail them to her. I hope she'll be pleased.

that really is quite lovely. Reminds me of Amy Palmer's memorial corner in her garden.

Will there be flowers come late spring?
